The Super 8 Years | Official UK Trailer
Nobel Prize-winning author Annie Ernaux directs this intimate documentary that blends the political and the personal.
The Super 8 Years is a record of lives lived between 1972 and 1981. Annie Ernaux, working with her son David, has drawn together footage that was mostly shot by her ex-husband (and David’s father) Philippe. It’s a detailed account of domestic family life, at home and abroad, while also recording the period when Ernaux first became a published author. As a result, the film ultimately becomes a record of a marriage in a state of gradual decline, as well as the blossoming of her writing career.
In Cinemas and on Curzon Home Cinema 23 June.
